Importing a GoDaddy QuickBlog to WordPress
I finally moved my son’s blog onto WordPress today after encountering an issue that others have encountered. I managed to get an export file from a GoDaddy QuickBlog but when I imported it to WordPress I experienced some weird behaviour.
The comments and posts appeared in the WordPress “Dashboard” but I couldn’t get to them by any other means, i.e. I would have expected them to appear in the blog and the “Manage Posts” area.
When I started to copy/paste the posts with the intention of editing the timestamp, I noticed that the URL ended “post.php?action=edit&post=10”. A URL hack later and I was able to get to the older posts, I noticed that they were had been imported and left unpublished. A couple of clicks later and the migration is now complete.
